I'm Gonna Make It After All

I never saw the original MTM television show. I was living in Germany at the time and missed it first time around. But I have seen every episode in reruns. I think during its' peak, there was actually talk of changing the name of Minneapolis to Maryapolis. Seriously. At any rate, here's my salute to the great closing of her theme song.








In case you don't understand my dumbstruck look, take another look at the original.

Well, Wayne. Maybe they will add the bewildered bystander as a new statue. Want to be the model?

jj: thanks

kw: I'm imitating that old woman at the end of the opening that looks at Mary like she's gone crazy. MTM threw the hat. Maybe I should have tied on a badana around my head and ears!

steve: my modeling days are over!

trixie: I sure did. There were lots of things we wanted to do and we did! Plus I knew it will probably be another 2 years or so before I go back.
